Re: Irish 7/20

DL seem to have switched BOS-DUB back to 752 for the winter resumption. It was originally due to go year round with the A333 this summer along with JFK and ATL prior to covid.

What sort of ground training would the Aer Corps be using EI-RJZ for exactly, fire fighting? Seems like an unusual acquisition.

Re: Irish 6/20: The behemoth reawakens ...

I see Cityjets EI-RJU has had all of its engines removed in DUB, I assume it will be removed on a truck or scrapped in DUB? It's many years since an aircraft has been scrapped at DUB. If this is its fate, I would expect to see it flown to somewhere like Kemble, where specialist dismantlers operate....

With United dropping EWR SNN, I wonder would EI be able to use an A321LR on the route next summer. I hope its due to United having a lack of an aircraft with the 757s being retired.

Interesting that Delta are now putting the A333 on the BOS - DUB route from August 1st and continuing through winter with a 763, but ATL - DUB or JFK - SNN wont return this year. JFK - DUB back Aug 1st with A333 also.

Was'nt American due to switch to the 787 on all its Dublin routes this year anyway, before the Covid outbreak. I dont think any A332s were scheduled. Delta were due to go to an all A333 in DUB and Air Canada were due to go all 787 in DUB. I think United were due to have 2 787 routes and 2 757.
